Finding parking at any hospital can be difficult at times. Staff and patients at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading often find themselves parking on surrounding streets when the car park is full. However, that has caused frustration for some people who live nearby.
Now it is feared that new restrictions on roads near the hospital are going to lead to more stress for staff and patients.
Reading Borough Council has approved plans to introduce pay and display charges on Addington Road and Erleigh Road despite strong opposition - including a petition with more than eight thousand signatures.
The council says the scheme is designed to make parking easier for neighbouring residents, but campaigners say it is morally wrong.
The interviewees in Mel Bloor's report are Rob Wilson, MP for Reading West, Conservative; and Clare Goulbourn-Lay, the midwife who started the petition.
In response to the suggestion that the hospital move to somewhere with more space for staff and patients to park, a Royal Berkshire Hospital spokesperson said that relocating the Hospital is not a new idea, and has been discussed on a number of occasions.
They added: "A new build could cost in excess of £200 million pounds. Any decision to relocate the hospital is not one the Trust would be able to make alone, and would need in depth discussion with the wider health care economy serving the area, along with NHS England and other partners.".
Friends of a Hampshire woman who died from pancreatic cancer have persuaded their local council to light up its council buildings in purple.
Bev Guymon raised thousands of pounds for cancer research before her death in May this year. Ahead of this week's World Pancreatic Cancer Day, Bev's friends have been working with Southampton City Council to create the 'Turn It Purple' campaign, aiming to raise awareness of the disease.
As part of the 'Turn It Purple' campaign, the council will illuminate its Civic Centre and the nearby O2 Guildhall Southampton in purple, the internationally recognised colour of pancreatic cancer.
We aim to raise awareness of this terrible disease and to remember all those, like Bev, who have lost their fight and those who are currently living with the disease.
We are proud to support this locally based charity in the fantastic work they do in improving patient care and patient prognosis. Their research into pioneering new treatments and identifying the causes of pancreatic cancer is invaluable in the fight against this terrible disease."
In 2013, ITV News Meridian covered Bev's Day of Basketball, where more than £12,000 was raised to support Liver & Pancreatic Research & Development Charity (LAPR&D) at University Hospital Southampton.
Liver and Pancreatic Cancer affects more than 15,000 patients in the UK every year. LAPR&D say there is a lack of funds dedicated to research and development to improve early detection, surgical treatment and survival rates.

A mother of triplets who had to fight for extra support for her disabled baby daughter has been named 'top fundraiser' by a children's hospice.
Lorna Cobbett and her husband Steve, both from Horsham, joined the annual 10k run for Chestnut Tree House to say thank you for the support its given nine-month-old Essie.
Together the pair raised more than £1,600 and are now planning on taking part in the marathon every year as part of their daughter's legacy.
Lorna said: "Essie has stayed at the hospice quite a lot, where she's known as Princess Essie, and we also have a lot of support from them as a family.
"They come out and do babysitting for us, we get counselling from the chaplain, who is amazing, and they're really good at letting us use their hydrotherapy pool - we can't say thank you enough."
